Time for some prose, about Epiphany Suit

I owe it to myself, and to my readers :-) to explain more about my thoughts for the Web_2.0» applicability to an "Epiphany Suit", with current technology. As I love seeing examples, here goes...

My current focus is on using the Browser as the lenses of the suit, and as a means of doing on-the-fly research on topics as they come up. 

  1. Having and maintaining a personal knowledge base (KB) may be appropriate. In a sense, always doing dynamic researches will yield the most current knowledge on a subject, but a drawback is that research takes time, and we may not always want to re-research topics that have already been researched. We can choose when to re-research a topic, but instead having a personal knowledge base, to refer to, can be a time saver. Personally, I use My System» of Tagging»that involves creation of an entry in my personal knowledge base, that gives an overview of the tag/topic, links to sites, etc.  A personal Wikipedia, if you will. This KB (personal Wikipedia) allows me to personalize tags/topics, in ways that make them understandable to me. This system does not exclude use of folksonomy bookmarking (e.g. del.icio.us, ma.gnolia), and in fact, has the effect of enhancing those bookmarks. I call my KB A-List. Here it is:
  2. Another method that I am using, is customzing my Flock browser with any number of Addons/Extensions», and customizing the toolbars. For example:

Anyone have any other suggested means of populating or implementing an Epiphany suit?

Jott, a love story

I am on business in Costa Rica. My wife is home in California. We were supposed to talk tonight using Skype. Guess what? The power is out at our home. So, guess what my wife did.  She used her newish Jott account, to phone in a an email to me. Very nice. Otherwise I would have stayed up late wondering why she didn't come one line and call me. Now I can rest easy on my last night here. Lovin' my wife. Lovin' Jott. And lovin' my wife that she thought of using Jott. Thanks Jott! Thanks Honey!

See you soon.

Any other fun stories about using Jott, anyone?

Experimenting with RTM (Remember The Milk), Jott, and Twitter

Lately I have been experimenting with RTM (Remember The Milk), Jott, and Twitter.

I also dabble in Pownce and Jaiku.

And I use Twitku to post to all three (Twitter, Jaiku, and Pownce) in one shot.

Mostly, I use Twitterfox to post to and follow in twitter.

Using twitter, I have been posting events to my Google Calendar.

And adding todos to RTM from twitter too.

Reference: Twitter, Jaiku, Jott, Plazes, Tumblr, Yurbo, and More...

For a list of the social software/sites that I dabble in, see: http://ericherberholz.googlepages.com/social

RSS: How to merge OPML files

As I have subscribed to RSS Feeds, in Google Reader and in Mozilla-based browser Flock's  Feed Reader on various computers, I would like to find or write an OPML merger, so I can combine them into one. The reason I use Flock for some is that my company's firewall prevents me from subscribing to intranet feeds from Google Reader.

The first hit that I found was:
So, I will check that out, but would like to know, does...

Anyone have a good RSS OPML merge tool?
